Recently at Centennial we held a Be Kind day. Students are asked to wear a Be Kind shirt that we sell at the school store for a reduced price of $8. The original shirts said “Be Kind” on the front and “…Just Because” on the back. We got the original idea for the shirts and Be Kind days from Weyburn Comprehensive School. We just added a new shirt which looks similar to the retro Coke logo.
If a student wore their Be Kind shirt they received a yellow rose which symbolizes friendship. They were then encouraged to pass the rose on to someone they appreciate. A Leadership student approached Michelle’s Floral Boutique near Centennial and they generously donated 4 dozen yellow roses.
It was fun to watch the yellow roses get passed on throughout the day. There were lots of postings on Instagram and Snapchat featuring the roses.
Sometimes a small gesture can make a difference.
